Next level in Software Development?

As a working student you help your RiskQuest collegas with developing software for the RiskQuest Navigator. RiskQuest Navigator is the risk management tool of RiskQuest. It utilizes PSD2 transaction data to analyze the financial situations and risks of companies and consumers. Other players in the industry focus on PSD2 disclosure or data gathering. For us this is merely the start. We commence with this data as our raw material to describe, diagnose and ultimately predict the financial situation of your customer. We leverage our deep expertise delivered by over 40 exclusively quantitatively educated consultants to extract as much information as we can from the data.

You will be directly responsible for your parts of the project and you will work together with a team of highly motivated RiskQuest colleagues. In addition to good compensation, we offer flexible working hours and a lot of substantive challenge.

We are a team of 40 ambitious individuals, almost all of whom have a quantitative background in econometrics, mathematics and physics. Mutual social contacts and an informal working atmosphere with a lot of individual freedom are important to us. You quickly become part of our close-knit team.
